Day 290: Mad About My Me-Made Makeup Bag

Day 291: Weird Science Dress
Day 289: Tea Dye FAIL

I’ve decided that I probably spend 40% of my life rifling through my bag looking for my lip gloss, powder, or chapstick.  That’s a lot of time, folks.  :/  It’s time to get organized!

I began with this pretty lace skirt:

Awwww! Pretty!

But this pretty skirt was hiding a pretty obvious secret…

The secret is, Jillian is a bit of a clumsy wino! :/

So…I could just shorten the skirt and move right along with my life, but I decided to go a different route.  🙂

I turned the skirt inside-out and pinned a rectangle around the side zipper.  Then, I cut it out!

Cut. It. Out. 🙂

I ran the edges through my machine, reinforcing the corners a bit as I went along.

Sewing right along...

I trimmed off that extra fabric, and now I have a lovely & lacy makeup case to keep all my beauty essentials in one easy-to-find location!  🙂
